Yes, it's true: Claire Merle, Julie Bertagna and myself will all be heading for Edinburgh and the Edinburgh International Book Festival - the largest festival of the spoken word in the world!
We're doing one event in the school's programme, and one in the public programme - both on 21st August. The latter is at 6 p.m. and here is the event:
Dangerous, dark, dystopian... Are stories about the future a thrilling escape from reality or can they inspire change? How far dare writers go as they embrace rebellion and independent thinking? Should there be limits? Should ideas be challenged? Join Demention blog authors, Julie Bertagna (Exodus), Claire Merle (The Fall) and Teri Terry (the Slated triology), for a big dystopian debate.Tickets are available here.
But that's not all....
The YA Edinburgh Book Hunt!
We and some other YA authors have got together to giveaway signed copies of all these books:
This giveaway is international.
To enter, visit one of the blogs of the authors involved. The link to mine is here.
All you have to do is follow the instructions on each blog and follow the hunt, until you get back where you started and email the answer from clues on each blog (full details are on each blog).
